Nasty crawl space in Dilworth, MN

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014 by Jim Laven


This home owner had been dealing with high humidity and odors for 20+ years in the home.   They needed to find a solution to solve all the problems they were having and have the confidence in the company and the products used.


The call was made to Innovative Basement Authority to receive a free estimate from a basement and foundation specialist.  Upon inspection the specialist discovered the source of all the issues the home owner was having.  The dirt crawl space allowed humid air to be drawn through the dirt floor and all throughout the home.  The high humidity also created dangerous mold and mildew that started to grow on the wood joist and fiberglass insulation.  After discussing all options with the home owner they agreed that the best solution would be to encapsulate the crawl space with CrawlSeal and replace all insulation with ExTremeBloc wall panels.  This would seal off all "bad air" from entering the home and reduce the current radon levels too.  Soon after the evaluation with the specialist the project was scheduled to be completed.  After the project was complete the difference in the homes air quality was immediate and the home owner was very satisfied the way the project turned out.

Project Summary

Specialist : Bradan Bach

Products Used: CrawlSeal liner, Drainage matting, ExTremeBloc Insulation, SafeDri
